It is the primary mission of this Agency to enhance the lives of our aging adults by promoting independence, choice and empowering our aging adults through partnerships and programs that improve and grow our home and community based services.
We, as an Agency and staff, envision working with the entire community to advocate for older adults so that they may achieve a better quality of life, while maintaining independence and dignity in their home community. We are committed to concentrating resources of the frail, rural elderly, while recognizing the needs of the community as a whole. We intend to expand services with continued emphasis on quality programs, effective employees and innovative ideas that will enhance the ability of those aging in our community to be educated on the services that are available and make choices that best suit the needs of the individual and the family. We continue to protect adults in danger of neglect, abuse or exploitation and abandonment.
For the future, we intend to expand services to new and uncharted areas with the assistance and expertise of the community at large and with continued emphasis on quality of programs.
